    What Forever Yours Dog Rescue asks of Volunteers

    Dedication – We certainly realize that rescue work can often be unglamorous, thankless and grueling. Please let the thankful eyes of our animals be a continual reminder of how important our work is. The truth of the matter is that without our dedicated volunteers working together as a team, most of these animals would literally not be alive!! We hope you’ll find your experience to be rewarding.

    Reliability – We ask that you give us a minimum of two day notice if you are unable to complete your assigned duties. Please e-mail us in advance at Betty@foreveryoursokc.org or Michelle@foreveryoursokc.org, or Denise@foreveryoursokc.org if you are unable to complete your duties if at all possible. Otherwise we will be expecting and counting on your help.

    Proper Dress - Please insure that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You will be on your feet and moving around for most of the outreach or event. Please do not wear jeans, shorts or shirts that have large holes in them. We ask that you not wear any T-shirts that are advertisements for tobacco, beer, gangs, or dress in any manner that might be offensive to other volunteers or the public.
